In 2002, Nevada voters added an amendment to the state constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman. That seemed like pretty clear language. But last summer, Judge Vaughn Walker ruled last summer that Proposition 8 in California was unconstitutional. If that decision is upheld, it would also invalidate Nevada's marriage amendment. And last week the Department of Justice announced it would no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act. So is Nevada close to gay marriage? Even if the marriage amendment is unconstitutional, does it mean that marriage has to be available to gay couples?
